The Sweater with Kathleen Dames | Season Four, Episode Six : The Colorwork


Today I’m sharing some favorite colorwork techniques (two-handed knitting, anyone?) plus the way I do provisional castons. If  crocheting a chain takes you out of your comfort zone, my provisional two-tail long-tail cast-on might just do the trick for you.

 

And one gentle reminder: YOU are the boss of your knitting.

Yarn info:

-Manos del Uruguay https://www.manosyarns.com/ - Kathleen will be using Allegria in Euphoria for her CC on The Heart Wants Pullover

-Swans Island Company https://swansislandcompany.com/ - Kathleen will be using Swans Island Pure Blends Fingering in Oatmeal, which has been discontinued, but Swans Island Sterling Fingering is a great substitute with the same 85% Merino/15% Alpaca fiber content
